Noor Iranian Film Fest to Honor Shohreh Aghdashloo

Actress Shohreh Aghdashloo will receive the Noor Iranian Film Festival’s Achievement Award at the Skirball Cultural Center on Oct. 24, the fest’s closing night.

Aghdashloo, who stars in “Silk,” a short film screening during the festival (pictured above), will receive the laurel from former Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences president Hawk Koch, president of the Producers Guild.

The festival, which seeks to educate the non-Iranian community about Iranian culture and heritage, will screen 35 features, documentaries and shorts at Laemmle Music Hall in Beverly Hills from Oct. 18-23. Among the films screening are Mohsen Makhmalbaf’s “The Gardener,” Marjane Setrapi and Vincent Paronnaud’s “Chicken With Plums” and 2013 Cinefondation Award winner “Needle.” Jury members include actor-producer Marshall Manesh, actor-director-producer Dennis Haysbert and Iranian cinematographer Farajallah Heidari. Awards are given for audience favorite, director, story, actor, actress, documentary, animation and short.

Tickets range from $12 per screening to $130 for the VIP All Access Pass. For more information, go to http://www.noorfilmfestival.com.
